Downtown Kelowna hosts first Small Shop at Night

Downtown Kelowna is proud to present the first “Small Shop at Night” on Thursday, June 19 from 4 pm – 9 pm. Stores will stay open late to kick-off the summer season while visitors explore.

Sit on one of the 50 patios, do some shopping, sample free gelato or paint a wine glass as 100 businesses are offering a special sale, demonstration or discount during the promotion to encourage customers to shop within their stores, encourages the Downtown Kelowna Association.

According to a recent study by marketer Roger Brooks, 70 per cent of all consumer retail spending takes place after 6 pm.Canadians are moving towards the European standard of dining and shopping later in the evening.

Live music and entertainment will feature talented local artists placed at 600 block Bernard Ave, 1200 & 1400 blocks of Ellis St. and 300 block of Lawrence Ave.

Visit the Laurel Packinghouse for a wine tasting, the Rotary Centre for the Arts (RCA) Bistro for a free sample of gelato then collect a delicious free handcrafted chocolate at the corner of Bertram Street.

Small Shop at Night will also feature free parking after 2:00 pm at all street level, city-owned parking lots and parkades.

Downtown Kelowna recognizes that small businesses play a vital role in Kelowna’s local economy, not to mention provide jobs and preserve the Downtown neighbourhood. For every $100 spent, $46 is recirculated back into the local economy.
